How far back in the iTunes releases do I have to go to get a version where you can edit the carrier file? 8.1?

  3. important]Applications> Utilities
  4. Run the following command: defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

Unless you live in Florida, Georgia, or possibly California, don't get your hopes up.
